Correct way to ping twitter users from outside of twitter using API?


Hi all,

I’m building an application that will search twitter for a specific keyword and show top 5 related tweets on my platform as a feed. These tweets can be pulled and submitted with the discussion happening on the platform. I intend to ping the tweet author at the same time with some form of tweet on his twitter account or an @mention/reply that informs him/her about their tweet being used at the platform and eventually have them click-through. However, the twitter guidelines encourage against this practice and may treat it as possible spamming.

If thats the case, what is the best possible way to achieve what I intend to?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best regards.
